So, first of all I know I'm dumb and should have been better prepared. I have ended up with 5 cats,my two older neutered males, two younger females about 10 months old) and one younger male (not sure of his age, but maybe a few months younger than the twins), latter 3 are not fixed. I believe one of the twins is pregnant (weight gain, elongated nipples). I had been quarantining the male/keeping him under supervision during the twins heat cycles until I could take the male to get neutered out of town(neutering + shots = $80 vs around $180), then the females down the line, but I wasn't as diligent as I thought.

Do vets perform abortions, or am I better off taking care of the kittens until I can rehome them?

If you're absolutely certain about that, please point out the source where the images originate from so that whoever's taking the photos can be reported and investigated by law enforcement. Some of chihuahua anon's threads are confirmed youtube screenshot threads where he's just coming up with bullshit fake backstories for someone else's videos, and he's making selectively chosen screenshots look worse than they actually are. But the majority of his threads show the same house, which can be identified from the furniture that reappears in his threads. For example, this picture shows the infamous brickwall with a fireplace and a rug >>3249053

Nearly every thread that has photos from this house starts with a dog that looks normal; sometimes a bit nervous, but otherwise like a pretty good dog. By the end, the animal will have a crazed look, it'll usually be lying down on the floor lethargically, it's shitting without any control, its eyes have turned red and bulging, and it's gasping for breath (as a result of either poisoning, strangulation, and/or drowning?).

Look at these threads in particular, which can both be identified as chihuahua anon due to the same kitchen sink:
https://desuarchive.org/an/thread/2371858/
https://desuarchive.org/an/thread/2492870/
Tell me these are just misleadingly cropped pictures, and that these dogs were not tortured or killed.

Also, several threads show that there are very young children's toys in the same room where dogs are frequently shitting. This could be a child endangerment issue along with an animal abuse issue.

No all he is saying is that humans are careless, taking everything they can with no regard of the consequences until one day they slap them in the face but by then it tends to be too late for any short term recovery in the best case scenario.
If uncontrolled you may catch gigatons of fish one day and the next one you wake up to see that the fish stocks are collapsed to a point of almost no return and there goes your food/income source like what happened with the canucks and the cods.

Viruses arent evil, anon. They just do their thing. Which is what WE are doing. Fucking shit up, not because we're trying to. Just living our lives, killing whales, dropping oil and trash into the oceans, fucking the ozone layer etc etc etc. Most people dont think about landfills and what'll happen once we actually kill off all the animals that we dont consider food or pets. Most people work 9 to 5 and wont start scrambling until they see the panic in the newscasters eyes. Now imagine that. We fuck earth by being human. That problem pushes us to space where we now have access to multiple planets that we can use and discard because there are billions of them as long as we can get to them. Do you honestly think we'll go 'nah we fucked up enough, lets settle on this one new planet and live quietly'? We're a virus anon

Hey guys I need help. I can’t decide if I want to become a zoologist or a Wildlife vet and I just need help what would you guys consider better. I need an answer soon as I’m almost done with my biology degree and will need to choose a path after. Thanks

You replied to the wrong person I think but yep that’s exactly why I switched to zoology from vet work after getting a taste of what it was actually like. It’s extremely demanding and the humans you deal with are mentally disabled. Not surprised that the vet suicide rate is what it is and so many vets discourage people from the field. Zoology/wildlife biology has its own problems and it’s not a cakewalk but I couldn’t be happier, it’s so rewarding.

It’s even harder than med school and a 4.0 is obviously fantastic but won’t guarantee it alone, need to have a fuckton of extracurricular stuff that shows your dedication to being a vet. Can’t decide to just be a vet on a whim one day and get in, it’s grueling

We really don't know if cats feel "shame" or not, it's safe to say they don't understand complex human cultural values but literally everything any other animal thinks or feels would just be human observation, essentially a guess, rendering this entire reply chain autism.

Compiling high quality information into a condensed form and selling that information is fine. its like me when i condense information into articles and papers where i can earn money from. if someone would rather learn everything from random youtube videos and random forums where anyone can say anything where their false information will have no repercussions on their income, then that is their choice.

Communists dont like that people compile information and sell information. Communists dont like people earning money.

>Compiling high quality information into a condensed form and selling that information is fine
Buying that information and re-distributing it for free is fine, especially when information has a potential to improve lives of parrots all around the world.
>Communists dont like that people compile information and sell information. Communists dont like people earning money.
Communists are worse than your typical IP holder. They copy and after this they claim they had made it from scratch.
Your re-distributor is not like this, they never claim they had made something.
I believe it is fine to copy IP as long as it is not used to make money.

Only real way to prevent people from copying stuff is to make price more appealing, and make it easier to buy than obtaining stolen copy.
>>
>>3250344
So almost every single book about animals being sold is bad because the information in those books are researched from somewhere else.
